Check connections - the wires for the lights that come on are different from the lights that don't.
you can check the trailer lights with a battery left/right/stop to see if they work independent of you vehicle.
you can check your vehicle connection with a meter or light probe.
you may need to check the trailering fuses and relays in the engine compartment. one or more may have failed.

Left bleaker and break light not working. Turn signal works bleaks faster than right side.


Has the vehicle been in an accident on the left rear side. First check the bulb to be sure it is not defective, trade it out with the side that works properly to test. If the bulb works well then My thought are you may have a shorted wire. The turn signal flasher works by heat build up within the flasher the heat is caused by the load of the bulbs, the load heats the metal spring causing it to open the circuit then as quickly as it cools down the circuit closes again lighting the bulbs.
There is also a possibility of a defect in the turn signal mechanism on the steering column. The turn signal switch on many models does three different things on many models that use the same bulb element / or bulb for brake and turn on rear of vehicle. It controls the circuit for brake light by sending power both left and right side rear when turn signal is in neutral position then when turn signal is in left turn the switch cancels brake light power to left side rear and supplies flasher power to left side while maintaining brake light supply to the right side rear, and so on opposite when the right turn is chosen on turn signal switch. The turn signal indicators on the dash normally run off the same circuit as front turn signal bulb only which is also controlled by turn signal switch. Front has turn signals but no brake light.
I think there is an additional load on the left side rear turn circuit and it could be either a wire that is shorted or the turn signal switch if the same bulb element is used for both functions.
Often times if trailer lighting is connected the flasher will also blink a little faster because of the extra load of additional bulbs.

I have a 2002 ford expedition that has a problem with the turn signals. when you turn on the right signal it works properly, but when you turn on the left signal both signals on the back of the vehicle...


Get a wiring diagram from the Free portion of the Autozone site. It is a little work to separate the Help categories at the bottom of their Webpage.

I have heard of SOME 4-way flashers that are built into the turn stalks causing problems. The contact pins for the turn signals are shared as 4-way flasher pins. Try clicking the 4-way flashers off/on about 20 times and then use the left turn signal. It has been known to reseat the contact pins.

The wiring diagram I mentioned would show where the tailgate top light gets its power. One feed should go to the brake light switch for the brakes and another feed should be the flasher feed.

As I see it, you have 2 extra lights going on when you use the left turn signal. Those 2 lights are the tailgate light and right turn signal. The wiring diagram should show the places where the wires are close enough to cross. I am thinking the 4-way flasher is the only place where the top tailgate light gets flasher power; the rest of the time the tailgate light is a Brake light.

I do not want to spend your money on an unnecessary turnstalk and that is why I say to look at a wiring diagram and see if there is anyplace where the wires could cross.

Last, trailer hitch plug. All wires are bundled with left turn, right turn, and brake light in the trailer hitch plug. Corrosion could connect the terminals.

Would like to know what you found.

I have a stock trailer, have tail lights but no brake or stop. My problem is that I can only find one wire going to this unit. Seems to me there has to be a wire for each filament. What am I missing...


the bulbs are 2 filaments right? there has to be 2 wires unless there is a ground wire (3 wires) every trailer has to have a Running light, Left turn, right turn, and ground. th ebrake and turn signals work the same wires. you dont say what kind of truck you have, but some trucks have fuses for trailer lighting. put the 4 way flashers on and see whats wrong. if you have flashers you should have brake.

2004 Chrys Concorde, new utility trailer, tail light converter. Problem: There is output from conv box in yellow wire, when turn signal is on, but when it is connected to the trailer harness, no output...


Your vehicle CANNOT be wired for a trailer without using the converter box. The only vehicles that do not require a converter box are the vehicles that use the stop lamp bulb as a turn signal. Your vehicle is equipped with SEPARATE stop lamp and turn signal bulbs.

To make the converter box work correctly, it must be wired according to the instructions to BOTH the stop lamps AND the turn lamps. The tail (or PARK) lamps DO NOT go through the converter box.
Your trailer uses the SAME bulb for stop and turn - THIS is the reason you need a converter.

The wire color for both your LEFT TURN and your RIGHT TURN are LIGHT GREEN/TAN. Although the wire colors are the same at the bulb sockets, these are SEPARATE circuits and must be wired to the correct wire at the converter box. (LEFT and RIGHT) The converter box will have an INPUT connection for EACH of these.

The wire color for your STOP lamps is WHITE/TAN. The converter box should only have one INPUT wire that connects to this. It doesn't matter which side of the vehicle you connect this wire to. All of the stop lamps are on the same circuit.

The converter will then have only one wire for LEFT turn and stop (usually YELLOW) this is the wire that needs to go to your trailer connector for left turn and stop.
The RIGHT turn and stop will most likely be GREEN coming out of the converter.

Have issues with trailer lights. Both turn signals on trailer flash when I use left or right turn signal. Have 7 pin factory plug. Lights on trailer work fine, hooked up to 97 Silverado. Act funny on 2000...


Standard wiring colors are as follows:

4-Way

5-Way

6-Way

7-Way

Green

Yellow

Brown

White

Red

Blue

Purple

Right Turn & Brake

Left Turn & Brake

Tail Lights

Ground

Backup Lights

Electric Brakes

Auxiliary Power
Green- Right Turn and Brake
Yellow- Left Turn and Brake
Brown- Tail Lights
White- Ground
Red- Reverse (Back Up) Lights
Blue- Electric Brakes
Purple- Auxiliary Power

It sounds like your green and yello wires are shorted together somewhere along the length of the harness. I would check the wires on the trailer first. Easier yet, if you have another trailer to connec or access to another to use for testing, connect to it and see if the problem repeats; if it does the trouble is in the vehicle's wiring.

you need a adapter for the flashing lights left and right as well the brake lights are seperate along with parking lights for the electric brakes you have to run a power direct to battery with circuit breaker installed on the line but if you look under the bumper near the drivers side in the back you have a connector installed by the company and you might be able to use it if that is what you did then you have to check the fuses because everthing is installed except the fuse for the connector so if thats what you did check the fuse box for missing fuses or burnt so green wire for right, white ground ,brown parking,yellow left the brake lights go through the adapter so check it out

2001 Sportage Trailer wire connections


brown to the tail lights. yellow to left turn signal. green to right turn signal. this is a basic 3 wire hook-up i use all the time w/4wire connectors for all trailers. white wire is not used. ground is established when you hook to the ball.
to find the correct wire to splice to, use a testor (has a clip to the bare wire, and a sharp point to the truck frame). using a needle, push it through a wire to rear light harness. turn on the turn signal. check if the connection is the blinker, testing until you have the blinker wire. the tail lights can be attached to the license plate wire. brakes and blinkers use same wire, so brake lights will work whenever the turn signal is attached.
to be sure everything is working right, have a second person go inside the truck and work the signals, brakes and lights one at a time while you are at the back of the trailer telling what to do.
